Our of interest, are the burkii flowers the same height as the venosa ones? I've got a flowering purpurea ssp venosa var. montana with very short scapes. Is the 'burkii is the only purpurea to grow short flowers' school of thought a myth?
that's an interesting question-to chime in, S. roseas in my collection consistently had short flower stems, even among different locations. S. purpurea venosa, on the other hand, had a lot of variation. The plants from old dock, columbus Co, NC had medium to short flower stalks. Another clone, which involved genetics from Brunswick Co, NC, has extremely tall flower stalks.
With the montanas, the transylvania Co, NC flower stalks are all short, but there's another montana I have that has medium to tall flower stalks.
With the purpurea ssp. purpurea populations, many are either medium height or tall. However, the marl bog form from Docus Bay, ON is very short like the roseas.
